AP Sukma Collector Alex Paul Menon (L) walks along with other officials after his release by Maoists on Thursday.

Freed by Maoists after 12 days in captivity, Collector Alex Paul Menon on FRiday reached his home in Sukma.

Mr. Menon reached Sukma from Chintalnar in a helicopter and was accompanied by the two Maoist mediators — B.D. Sharma and Prof. Haragopal.

After landing in Sukma, Mr. Menon headed straight to his official residence. Senior officials from Bastar region were also present on the occasion.

The Collector was welcomed at home by his wife Asha Menon and other family members, who performed the traditional aarti on his homecoming.

Thanking everybody for his support, Mr. Menon said he was OK. The 32-year-old Collector, abducted on April 21 at Sukma, while touring a village, was handed over to the two Maoist mediators at Tadmetla on Thursday evening and was then brought by road to the CRPF base camp at Chintalnar.

The genuine demands of maoists should be addressed by the central and state governments. The backward region needs a facelift in all aspects, the officials should be given ample protection to execute the government welfare measures meant for the common-man. The need of the hour is to instill hope among the masses and the government machinery which will pave way for smooth administration.
